Who knew computers would be so advanced in the year 2001? Certainly not us... we were damn impressed with Furby and along comes HAL. HAL was created in 1992 at the HAL plant in Illinois... then had some minor "issues" during a 2001 space mission. Subsequently HAL's memory units were removed for later examination and some of these happened to fall into our hands... or that's what some Dave guy told us. Technology wasn't quite as refined back then but these slim USB thumb drives can hold 1 Gig of your files and interface using USB 2.0, an engineering miracle at the time. All of HAL's schizophrenic tendencies should be removed but we guarantee nothing. Watch your computer carefully for any erratic behavior and please leave your pod bay doors open.
